I liked this icing b/c it didn't call for shortening. It was a good buttercream icing. I doubled the batch to icing 2 layer cake and it just made it!
I have been trying to find a white or buttercream icing that is not super sweet. This is what I have been looking for! AMAZING!
I think you are so funny! Thanks for the laugh. I chose to go the route of icing everything in my home! LOL! J/K!!! Still giggling over here!
Great icing! The recipe didn't specify when to add the butter, so I creamed it and then added the powdered sugar. I measured the milk into a liquid measuring cup and then just poured a bit in at a time rather than struggling with measuring in teaspoon increments. Can you believe it took nearly 28 years of married life cooking to figure that one out? It worked like a charm. I just poured the unused milk back into the carton. Also, I added the vanilla at the end. Anyway, Kelly, thanks for a very good recipe! I look forward to trying your white cake soon!
Used country crock instead of butter. Flavor was great. Had trouble getting right consistency. Put on request velvet sheet cake. Was very good.
I was looking for a recipe that makes a smaller amount of icing because I was making a "Wacky Cake", which is baked in an 8x8 pan. This icing has a great consistency and wonderful flavor. Be sure to mix the powdered sugar and butter together with an electric mixer before adding the milk and vanilla. You will have a smooth and creamy consistency that way. Thanks, Kelly, for sharing your recipe.
I absolutely LOVE this icing WITH the butter AND the directions....... LOL
It is so simple and so good........plus the part about adding milk in TINY proportions is dead on advice.
I LOVE vanilla so I used 2 teaspoons and next time may use even a bit more.
The ingredients called for will ice an angel food cake very nicely.
this is my go-to white icing recipe! i have used it several times. I love the sassy directions :) lol
Made this recipe for chocolate cupcakes and sprinkled them with coconut, so good! I halved the recipe, however, and still had some leftover (didn't want to make them too sweet).
